A Knitting Bag

I can't believe it was over 6 months ago I tried to make some project bags and then the prototypes sat on my cutting desk until the other day. Actually I can believe it was over 6 months ago, I do this type of thing all the time and that is why I can't see my cutting desk and why I find it very tricky to do any cutting on it.
The pattern I drew needed some changing, the size wasn't quite right and the pieces weren't fitting together quite right, but then a few months ago I was browsing Amazon Japan and found this book.
With this pattern in it. Perfect! Exactly what I wanted for little knitting projects.
I used some linen/cotton blend for the outside and interfaced it with some light/medium woven interfacing from Textile Traders which was perfect as it gives it some body, but doesn't make it too stiff to scrunch up and put in my bag.
I used cotton for the inside and added a pocket on one side. I probably should have added one on the other side as well

 So one project has been cleared off the cutting table. Unfortunately it has been replaced by another unfinished project.
